Her Deadly Reunion is a great read. I honestly did not know how I would like it. I was surprised at how quick I was pulled into the suspense and wanting to find out who is the one causing harm to Jill's newly found father. I did not want to put the book down until I was done. Great read. Five plus stars.
I borrowed this book from the Kindle Unlimited program. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

This was your typical almost murder mystery that gets broken up by the new comer type story, and while I found the story itself to be fairly decent, I didn't understand why the author kept throwing in the whole religious thing. Here and there, it's fine, and could have enhanced the story nicely, but I found the religious aspect to be way overdone, and it kind of killed the enjoyment of the story and it's floe for me. I'm sure some will enjoy it as is, and that's fine, but for me, it was just a b ...more

If all the references to God and God's will were removed the book would be a third of the length it is. The overly religious content aside, the story moves way too slow. I had to force myself to stay with it. ...more

This story is the reason we should leave things to the police. Jill risked everything to save her father. This story is suspenseful, but the killer is obvious, even though Jill is oblivious to the goings on in this house. The only reasonable character is her boyfriend, Clay. And he proves how sensible he is at the end of this story. There is a lot of conflicting things with no reasonable explanation at the end of the story.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The mystery was very good and I loved Jill & Clay. I didn't feel that it was preachy. The main characters are Christians who pray but I didn't feel that they tried to force their religion on the others. Jill definitely wanted her father to be saved before he died but she didn't hound him over it. All in all a very good read!
I received a free copy of this book from LPC and voluntarily chose to review it.

As with the first book (Her Deadly Inheritance), this book did not disappoint. Beth Ziarnik keeps things moving with lots twists and turns throughout this face-paced thriller. This is an excellent Christian mystery that will keep you wanting more from this author. Can't wait for the next book she has coming out for us. ...more
